Broken Brake Line? No problem! Fix it with a Prebent Brake Line from SSTubes.
This weeks project at Fine Lines is 2013 Ford F-150 Supercab with the 3.5L Ecoboost engine. The customer broke a brake line. Luckily they happened to know one of our employees and lived near by.
We were able to re-manufacture the brake lines and designed one of our new Quick Fix Fuel line kits for it. Let us know if you like what you see in the comments below!
Here are the brake lines coming out of the ABS module on this 2013 F150 EcoBoost.
Here you see the center line feeding into the rear differential as well as the prebent stainless steel brake lines feeding along the rear axle to rear braking systems for each tire.
The stainless steel rear brake line to the passenger side rear brake is prebent to mold around the differential cover, making it easier to do rear differential and axle work.
This is a junction or connection from one hard brake line to another. The prebent brake lines are created like this because inserting a line in one piece would be nearly impossible to snake through the engine and round every curve. Junctions in the hard brake lines are necessary for easier installs.
The prebent stainless steel brake line is connected to the soft brake hose at the front brake.
